Here's what the "blue grid" version of Prevue Guide looked like during its first few hours of operation on my cable system. Brand new out of the box, without any of its satellite video connections hooked up yet. The cable company was just patching Cable Radio Network through for audio filler.

The 1990's are not that far back. Now if you have video of cable programming from say 1975-76, now that would entertaining. Cable had one channel-HBO, and it came on at 6:00pm to 6:00am. The rest of the time, it was a b/w camera at the local cable office, panning back and forth over a weather array showing time/temp/humidity. That was it.

I remember now when the cable tv guide looked like this...
It's weirdly interesting to see it again and remember how slow and annoying it was. Makes me grateful for the much better interface I have now, even when I find the content unsatisfying in the extreme.
